DESIGN OF X-BAND MICRO STRIP PATCH ANTENNA ARRAY

Author: KHALID MUZAFFAR

Category: Engineering, Science and Mathematics

Abstract:

The modern wireless communication demands high gain, wide bandwidth and reduced size antennas that are efficient to provide improved performance over a wide range of frequency spectrum, which can be easily obtained using micro strip patch antenna arrays. This paper presents the design of compact 4x4 micro strip patch antenna array. Corporate feed technique is used for excitation. The proposed antenna array is designed on RogersRT5880 substrate with dielectric constant (εr) of 2.2 and thickness 0.762mm. The simulation is carried using CST Microwave Studio. The antenna has been designed at 8 GHz and is therefore highly suitable for X band applications.
